10 Heart Melting Outer Banks Vacation Marriage Proposal Ideas Pt. 2

6. Sunset Sailing on the Roanoke Sound 

Outer Banks sailing at its finest! The Downeast Rover departs from the Manteo waterfront for two-hour sailing trips that are offered three times a day including a sunset tour at night. Away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, you can enjoy the 55-foot topsail schooner sailing on the Roanoke Sound with Jockey’s Ridge and Roanoke Island as the perfect back drop. The beautiful sunset tour is BYOB so bring along your favorite bottle of champagne to toast once your loved one says yes.

7. Nighttime Walk on an OBX Pier 

After having dinner at a local restaurant or at your OBX vacation rental, head over to the nearest pier for a nighttime walk. Jennette’s Pier is the nicest pier on the Outer Banks but any of them will do. Get down on one knee when you reach the end and the pier’s lights reflecting off the ocean water will set the perfect scene for an unforgettable engagement proposal!

8. Romantic Waterfront Restaurant
